Crime Patrol


Published 1936
Topics


Bob Neal (Ray Walker) agrees to lose a fight so gangster Vic Santell (Wilbur Mack) can make some money. He wins the fight and Vic tries to have Bob beaten up for his double cross; he fails and is arrested.

After his mother (Virgina True Boardman) asks the Police Commissioner (Herbert Corthell, who played Mr. Bronson in Renfrew of the Royal Mounted) to, he goads Bob into a bout with Patrolman Davis (Russ Clark). After getting knocked out, he meets and promptly falls in love with nurse Mary Prentiss (Geneva Mitchell). He decides to join the Force for the physical training.

Finally, after semi-successfully juggling his job on the Force with his shady connections, Bob is forced to play both sides at once in an armed gang with Mary, Davis, and his fellow patrolman hostage.

Subject: Fun
This is B-movie fun of the best. Fast paced. A lot of trustworthy characters from whom you would certainly buy the second-hand car if they offer it to you. Coppers who are what you expect. Nurse “Pretty Swell Dish” always fresh from styling in the beauty salon. If you like tough language and great hearts, then watch this. A swell set-up, otherwise: “Beat it, you cheap doublecrossing crook!”

I like Ray Walker movies.. he's the quintessential wise cracker in these old flicks.. Why he didn't become much more popular is beyond me.. Sure, he had the same sound in every movie, but so did Cagney, Bogart and the rest.
Actors now are all vanilla and if they don;t fake-hump right they don't become stars..

Subject: Well at least it has Snub Pollard
Empire Films which distributed this film went out of buisness shortly there after. Not the worst picture I ever saw, but............

Subject: I¡¦m slim AND I¡¦m shady!
A shady boxer is recruited to become a police officer (he gets his badge the very next day it seems) and is soon fighting the friends he had in the underworld world! So Mr. Boxer has to make some tough choices.. which way will he go? Yeah, this IS pretty predictable and lightly plotted. But this film moves along in a brisk pace for people to notice (for a change) and while Ray Walker is not necessarily the best looking nor the best acting guy in the world, he¡¦s passable. Good for a somewhat entertaining, if extremely light night at the movies.
